It is not surprising that the works in the museum almost always come from the area in which it is located or from neighboring land. The main task, in my opinion, is precisely In nurturing the link between museums and the fabric in which they are immersed, informing works and stimulating a sense within society of belonging to civic museums. There is a special awareness of the power and potential of museum culture. What we would like to do today, with the Museums of Rimini, is to promote this identity and this knowledge.”
